Helmets are a must for the electric scooter rider and in some cases are mandatory.
Electric Scooters can be compared with bicylces in terms of risks and the injuries
that can occurr if certain safety precautions are not taken. This article is
designed to provide some input and advice helmets and to provide some benefits that
helmets can provide. The articles will also discuss several items related to

Helmets help to prevent up to 88% of cyclists brain injuries. These figures have
applicability to electric scooters as well. If someone has been thrown from a

If you have an old helmet, you may want to consider replacing it. Some of the old
helmets do not fit modern specifications and probably do not provide the maximum
protection against injuries and crashes. If the helmet is not comfortable, then
you may want to replace it. The helmet also should have a certification from a
number of major certification bodies. Some of these bodies include CPSC, ASTM or
Snell. If it doesn't have stickers from one of these guys, you may want to replace
it. Several manufacturers have extra large helmets, but Bell has the largest, its
Kinghead model fitting up to 8 1/4 heads.
Helmets are mandatory for bicycles and for scooters in some states and localities.
Since the laws are always changing, it is difficult to obtain a current record that
lists all applicable laws. The best thing to do is to check you local regulations
and where you are riding your scooter.
